The Resource Network & Big Hog - Split 7"
The Resource Network & Big Hog - Split 7"

This already marks the second time these two bands from India­na­po­lis are poo­ling their, um… resour­ces for a split release - this time it's a 7" on Good­bye Boozy Records. Not only is the record­ing qua­lity a little bit less rough than last time; both bands have also signi­fi­cantly diver­si­fied their musi­cal voca­bu­lary.
The Resource Net­work alter­nate bet­ween smar­typ­ants garage punk of the Ura­nium Club & Yam­me­rer variety, a post punk/-core thingy you could ima­gine as a weird mix of Rites Of Spring and early Slo­venly, and finally a strai­ght punk rocker radia­ting a Laun­cher-style KBD Vibe.
Quite a bit of the lat­ter you can also find on Big Hog's side and there's less of a hard­core edge to their new songs - ins­tead you'll find a wild post punk ride you might describe as Patti-meet-early-Minu­te­men, sur­roun­ded by two blasts of noise punk resemb­ling what Lumpy & The Dum­pers could have sounded like on some sort of sludge/​doom trip.
